Spin that record babe .... Just Dance" ... Love this song by Lady Gaga ... kinda reminds of my 20's and spending the nights just dancing and dancing and laughing and fun ....
I love dance ... but my love of dance wasn't always there ... I remember mom sending me to ballet at the tender age of 6 ... and i remember wanting to skip and leap and twirl ... but we were stuck learning the basic positions and i hated the restrictions imposed on us by a highly technical dance instructor. Mom switched me to art class and that seemed to soothe my creative heart. I actually put my daughter in ballet at a young age, she lasted 3 classes ... so i switched her to musical theatre and she loved it ... the songs, the acting, the jazz/broadway styled dance. Like mother like daughter i guess ... Despite my lack of success with dance, i have always loved it. And I think i love dance because it tells a story, it incorporates music, costume and sometimes background art as well as the art of lighting a stage ... to me its more than just a visual spectacle ... it incorporates more than just sight .... it incorporates heart, soul & sound as well ... it's an art form that incorporates so many other arts ... And I know that is why i love it so much ... and my favourite style of dance ... Ballet of course ... it's just so romantic and so poetic and the costumes are so spectacular and the physic of the dancers is amazing ... perfection in motion ... I may not have ever danced it, but i do love it ... it speaks to my soul.
And Mona Lisa Mae ... as much as she wants to be a ballerina ... i think her tail is going to hold her back a bit ... but she does look pretty in her tutu!
